Reed Business Information has appointed a sales director for

Totaljobs.com and briefed him to find up to 50 dedicated sales staff by

the end of 2000.



Mike Convey, the 30-year-old group ad manager of RBI’s catering

portfolio, will take up the reins this week.



Reporting to director of recruitment Paul Sissons, Convey will look to

swell Totaljobs’ dedicated sales team of six. He is searching for all

levels of staff, from telesales through to field sales and ad

managers.



Convey is Totaljobs’ first dedicated sales director. The web service,

which launched last year, has previously been sold as a package with

RBI’s hard-copy magazines by the company’s 150-strong centralised

recruitment sales department.



Convey said: ’A decision has been taken at board level to look seriously

at online.



’We are well placed to do this because we are the recruitment market

leaders - or at least head to head with the competition - in social

services, construction, property and catering.’



RBI is keen to make Totaljobs a self-supporting site instead of relying

on classified ads from its magazines, which include Computer Weekly,

Caterer and Hotelkeeper, Asian Chemical News and Hospital Doctor.
